Divorcing parents

When a marriage fails it can feel like losing a loved one. The emotional toll of splitting from your support system and all the stability the two of you have created is huge and often makes it hard to think clearly. All of this is amplified when you have children. Navigating the emotional turmoil of separating from your spouse while simultaneously figuring out how to continue co-parenting with them so that your children continue to receive both of your love and support is especially challenging. This episode is specifically aimed to assist parents in making better choices for themselves and their children during the process of letting go and moving on to a new life.

During a divorce the focus is most often on the couple that is splitting up or any small children they may have. Older or adult children can be overlooked and often become the confidants and support systems for their divorcing parents. The truth is that having family split apart is painful at any age and being expected to be a rock for your parent(s) while not having support or space to process this change in family dynamic can be traumatic. This episode of the Podcast features suggestions for acknowledging the strife, realizing it's not your fault, forgiving and moving on with your life.
